My experience at American Leadership Academy (ALA) Ironwood was been overall probably one of the best experiences I have ever had! As a fairly new school ALA is growing in the amazing of classes the offer and the amount of students. ALA Ironwood has classes like Financial Literacy and entrepreneurship to help students learn how to earn and control their money, setting up the students for a great kick start to life (wether going into college or going into the work force).

American Leadership Academy Ironwood is a great school!!!! I absolutely love it! All of the teachers are super nice and caring.. They are willing to work with their students to help them succeed in their classes and they are willing to do what it takes to make sure that each and every student has an opportunity to gain a better education.. I have not seen one teacher who doesn't care about a student... American Leadership Academy-Ironwood teaches students about Respect, Accountability, Integrity, Service and Excellence to help provide young people an opportunity to be a successful adult when they graduate. Each of the RAISE values is vital to our success in life..... If it wasn't for American Leadership Academy- Ironwood, I wouldn't be as successful of a student as I am right now.
I am a junior in high school, but I had been homeschooled for the last six years. So this was my first time actually attending a high school. So I was very nervous when I first arrived. But this school has given me tremendous help and support throughout the year. And they had an Entrepreneurship class, which was unique to this school. There is almost no other high school or college that has this class. The one thing that I would change is the length of the classes. They are too short! They have so many classes and so little time to teach each one.
